stanford in computer sciences. i started asking him what he studied behind computer issues that i was shocked he could graduate from this amazing university where condi teaches and he had when economics course or history course. we basically said we're going to start producing at the castle curricular material. but produce simulations and modules afford that high schools and colleges can use to close this gap between what it is kids know and what it is a need to know in order to be ready for this world to like it or not is going to fundamentally affect. >> do come from an educational background in foreign policy and security background. what is your sense to fix the problem? >> maybe i will start and then pass it to someone. i come from a national security background, cc is a product of the educational system, if you will, gives me a perspective on what it is we need to achieve in that period of time. obviously a fan produced at the very, very best. i would so you two things. number one, if you have low expectations of even the best in its comment they will live down to them.

times the total investment made of r&d, science and education. if we permit that to happen we are assured a slow-growth crisis that is what will happen if we don't do anything. mike, please takeover. >> i don't claim to be an economics expert. but from the national security standpoint i have felt for years not just the health of our economy around the world but those that generate positive outcome and from the defense standpoint as pointed out if said that continues to grow it will continue to eat at us and when you put in good time bomb of the sequestration it was supposed to be so heinous that congress would never permit it to happen but yet we're on the verge andover what we have been fighting over the last decade at a time when there is clearly increasing pressure on the defense budget and i have said it should pay its fair share. with the media impact to get to a part of your question and i worry about the acceleration to create a hollow force very rapidly. and the president does what he says he will he takes it off the books of any cuts with the totality focused on a ver
